Warsaw
– An adviser to Poland’s president has said that Israel’s reaction to a law
criminalizing some statements about Poland’s actions during World War II stems
from a “feeling of shame at the passivity of the Jews during the
Holocaust.”

 

Andrzej
Zybertowicz, a Nicolaus Copernicus University sociology professor who also
serves as a presidential adviser, said in an interview Friday that Israel’s
opposition to the new Polish law is “anti-Polish” and shows the
Mideast country “clearly fighting to keep the monopoly on the
Holocaust.”

 

“Many
Jews engaged in denunciation, collaboration during the war. I think Israel has
still not worked it through,” Zybertowicz said in the
interview published in the Polska-The Times newspaper
.
